"Real freedom lies in wildness, not in civilization."

Charles Lindbergh (1902 - 1974)

Looks like a bit of anarchist there to me.

Civilization has boundaries and manmade limits that put copntraints upon individuals but the wild lets you be as smart or stupid as you wish to be and natural consequences (living or dying) are up to you for the most part.

I wonder, though, are the "laws" of nature really that different? I am nost so sure that I believe this quote even though I think I understand where he's coming from.

I think that there are levels of freedom: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Physical freedom has more to do with what is around you whether it is the wilderness or the city - either one can have "chains" of some kind.

Mental, emotional, and spiritual freedom, however, come from within you and those are yours alone. You build your own walls or bridges and your level of freedom is dictated only by yourself.

You are as "free" as you choose to be.
